Another great installment
27 September 2006 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Episode 3 of The Wire opened with the revelation that the infamous Omar is planning on making some bigger moves this winter. Who can blame him? What with all the hustlers still scared of him, he should be on top of people like Marlo in a couple of weeks/episodes.

I enjoyed the correlation between Marlo taking over what's left of Barksdale's streets and Commissioner Rawls sending in a new lieutenant to stir things up at the wire. It seems to be working. But I'm sure that as soon as we have mayor Carcetti in office there will be a new program set in to place. Perhaps it will be a witness protection wire! There is a little more McNulty this week than we experienced in last episode. It's tough to predict how this detail will form and what importance McNulty will be in it. But it appears that every one of the major players left in the unit is going to homicide. Perhaps Major Daniels will be able to keep the wire afloat. Daniels himself gone through some kind of transformation since his promotion, we see this when Detective Greggs is in his office and all we have to know that she is talking to Daniels is that it's his voice responding. It may look bleak at the moment but I'm speculating that the newest Major at the Baltimore Police Department will find the position to be a touch too methodical.

It's impossible to touch on everything that happens with this enormous cast. With everything that goes on I'm surprised that we even got to McNulty this week. He seems to have very little presence this season. Hopefully something will happen at one of the schools and he will find a passion for fighting alongside our favorite team of police, again.
